You've probably heard the saying that "kitchens sell houses", and for the most part, it's true. Homebuyers are certainly paying attention to the kitchen, and some may even have a list of must-haves. However, when preparing to list your home, spending tens of thousands of dollars on a full kitchen remodel may not be the best investment. Unless your kitchen is extremely dated or dysfunctional, a minor kitchen remodel may do the trick.
A minor kitchen remodels uses much of the existing kitchen without gutting it or significantly changing the layout. In most cases, simply refacing cabinet fronts, adding new hardware, upgrading countertops to granite or quartz, new flooring, a fresh coat of paint, and stainless steel appliances will have a dramatic effect. You may not see a 100% return on your investment, but it should attract more offers and shorten the time on the market.
